This week’s Around the Web is a compilation of a few of our favourite news items of the week – read on for free plugins, workflow keyboards, and updates to the Ohm Force range with a discount to celebrate!
Blue Cat Free Plugin Bundle Update
We love free plugins, especially when they’re cross platform and have a genuine use. Well, I guess really we only love them when they actually fulfil those criteria. Blue Cat’s free plugin bundle does just that; with EQ, phaser, flanger, chorus, and utility plugins for Mac and PC in all the formats you can imagine (probably). This update brings bug fixes to make the bundle even more tempting…
Editorskeys Ableton Live Keyboard
Editorskeys are poised to release a new keyboard dedicated to Ableton Live. There are loads of keyboard overlays around, and in fact Editorskeys do provide them, but this is an actual keyboard as opposed to a form dependent silicone sheet which enables the designers to create their desired key action. Most interesting is the community focused design process; rather than in house decisions, the Ableton Live keyboard was designed in consultation with professional users. How does it feel?

Ohm Force 64 bit Update
Finally for this week, Ohm Force are updating their plugin suite to 64 bit and providing a 10% discount for all purchases until the 9th of May 2012. We love Ohm Force plugins because not just because they sound great, but because of their playful interfaces. Who couldn’t love that GUI?!
